The anti-wrinkle moisture solution from the deep.
•Anti-wrinkle defense cream to help reduce the signs of aging and protect skin from external damage.

•Cool Kiehl’s Fact:The Abyssine 657 “survival molecule” is a polysaccharide found in the depths of the ocean. The ingredient is derived from microorganisms discovered near the Galapagos hydrothermal vents in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 3,000 meters where the algae is able to adapt itself to the harshest conditions.
Abyssine, a naturally derived survival molecule which thrives under the extreme conditions in hydrothermal ocean vents where magma and seawater mix.

Apricot Kernel Oil is extracted from apricot kernels and has a very high Vitamin E content (aiding fast absorption) and is a trygliceride composed of 75% oleic acid and 20% linoleic acid, and unsaturated fatty acids esterified with glycerin - similar to avocado oil and sesame oil. Found to be highly compatible with the skin. Apricot Kernel Oil moisturizes and softens skin while helping retain clarity and suppleness.
This "vegetal coral" is an unusual, mineral-rich red algae with the unusual ability to produce a gel which forms a self-defensive, calcified shell from minerals found in sea water. It has been shown to thicken the stratum corneum layer of skin and to help reinforce the moisture barrier function of the skin.

Kirsten S:I think you are talking about the Coralina officianalis extract. That is actually a calcarous seaweed, not a coral.
I'm more perplexed about the sourcing of Abyssine 657, said to be synthesized by some thermal vent-dwellind deep sea creature. Would like to know the sustainability of such a product, and whether Kiehl's uses the naturally derived form or a synthesized one.Nov 19, 2012
Nadine C:Can you tell me ingredients of the Ayssine Cream? I had a skin cancer removed from my face and the plastic surgen told me to get a good moisturizer with spf 25-30 made with natural ingredients. Does it have Zinc oxide, Titanium dioxide, Avobenzone, Ecamsule and oxpenzone with UVA/UVB? Or, can you tell me what ingredients it has?Dec 7, 2012
Maria C:Hi, I've used this cream for about 4 years and until about a year ago it worked well. I'm now 56. I liked that it had Apricot Kernel oil which does well on my skin--I have fairly smooth skin with deeper wrinkles on my forehead between my eyes. This was great overall on my skin as it kept it smooth and fresh looking. It has a light clean smell and very faint. It is thick so alot goes a long way. It is not greasy. I've since graduated to the Rosa Artica because I have Sjogren's Syndrome which means I don't produce enough moisture for my body. I have to constantly hydrate and take large doses of fish oil. Both the Abyssine and Rosa work better than anything else I've tried--the Rosa works a bit better. I apply argan oil underneath the creme and this usually lasts about 6-8 hours under makeup. Hope this helps.Aug 23, 2012
Peggy H:I love this product. I use it after removing my makeup at night and before applying makeup in the morning. It moisturizes and relieves that dry skin feeling after my shower. I've been using it for years. I use several Kiehls products. Another of my favorites is the Calendula Toner.Jul 5, 2012
Arline J:You can "feel" the moisture immediately and it feels very different than other anti aging creams that feel oily or non existent.Am not sure how to answer "see moisture" because in my case, it is all feel. I have also purchased the Abyssine Eye Creme and like it very much as well.Apr 12, 2013
Julie H:I am a huge fan of Abyssine Cream, but have never used the vit C cream. I also have found that I cannot use the Abyssine w/any sunscreen as it causes me to break out. I apply my own sunscreen over the Abyssine.Mar 26, 2012
Judie W:I use the abyssine cream + SPF 23 OVER Kiehl's POWERFUL STRENGTH LINE-REDUCING CONCENTRATE. I use this combination for daytime because of the SPF 23 (don't want to waste that for a night time application).Mar 26, 2012
Jan S asked:I really like this product, but your website is not letting me order it. I find this most discouraging, and I think you should be more responsive when someone is trying to purchase your products! How about some help that helps???Jun 6, 2012
